    Two input validation errors were discovered in drupal and its bundled
    xmlrpc module. These errors can lead to the execution of arbitrary
    commands on the web server running drupal.
    
    drupal was not included in the old stable distribution (woody).
    
    For the current stable distribution (sarge), these problems have been
    fixed in version 4.5.3-3. 
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 4.5.4-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your drupal package.
